Bobby dazzler brace shines and Steer's Blackfield to 3-2 win...
...in 1st victory since 10th December 2011.
Striker Bobby Scott took his tally to 12 for the season with a brace, while the young pretender Matt Steer marked his debut with an amazing strike that gave the watersiders their first victory of 2012.
Laverstock took an early 9th minute lead from a free kick that was well converted from the head of Craig Vigar.
Bobby Scott levelled things up on the half hour with a trademark opportunity. Blackfield then took control of the match with confidence gained from an energetic blend of passing and movement not seen at Gang Warily for some time.
The home side continued to dictate play right from the start of the second half before 19 year old Aldershot Town starlet Matt Steer showed why he was brought here.
Picking the ball up from just outside the 'D' he made space to balance a well struck shot past the keeper that enhanced his debut and performance to give the team a deserved 2-1 lead with 57 minutes on the clock.
Blackfield continued their youthful, and senior player equality, with a display of football that warranted a much larger spectator attendance.
Although the visitors started to take more of an interest in this match from the 65th minute, their forward play led to being caught at the back.
Bobby Scott used his talent, and handed opportunity to good effect with an easy strike from inside the 18 yard box to complete his brace on 73 minutes for a 3-1 cushioned lead.
Some shine was taken away from celebrations during a hectic last 17 minutes.
Lack of concentration with a degree of ill discipline threatened to change the final eventual outcome of this entertaining game as Laverstock mounted a barnstorming finish.
Matt Hartfield's refusal to step the required distance back from a free kick broke the letter of the law in the Referee's opinion that resulted in being given his second caution, and with it his marching orders from the field of play with a subsequant dreaded red card for his action.
The visitors, encouraged by an opposition of only 10 players then peppered the home half with openings of their own.
A bizzare, and cheeky back heel across a crowded box provided 18 year old youth product and substitute Luke Arnold with an easy tap-in at the far post that eluded the stranded Hutchings that gave Laverstock hope of something more at 3-2 on 86 minutes.
Blackfield had to weather a late storming finish from Laverstock but dealt with the threat during the remaining time left to record their 1st win since the 3-2 away gain on 10th December 2011.
A very young looking George Kimber in the left back position aided and complimented quite a solid looking, and experimental defence line.
This ex Sherborne Town youth player, recently signed by boss Ashley Vickers, bellied his 18 year old slight frame on this, his debut, with an altogether outstanding performance.
George Bowerman, team mate of Matt Steer at Aldershot, again recently signed, made his opening club bow as a substitute.
He did very well and looked comfortable on the ball in a position that he is not used to just in front of the back line as a holding midfield player. This more than natural goal scorer may have to wait his opportunity for a full debut but on this evidence it does not seem to far away.His link up play was very effective with good passing ability.
